The fascinating story of a cricketer is in the backdrop of a cricketer fighting a battle against Cancer with helplessness. Yuvraj was on top of the world when he was told by Dr. Einhorn that the cncer was dead, he could be back again to leading a normal life. In the last chapter Yuvraj talks about his emotional return to Cricket.
I still remember I was desperately waiting for India vs New Zealand in Vishakhapatnam as it was the match Yuvraj would make his come back but the game got washed out. But two days later Yuvraj made his come back in Chennai. When Yuvraj walked out to bat I had got emotional and when he hit Daniel Vettori for a six, I had tears in my eyes. But the return was not so easy, it took months of beastly training at NCA, Banglore.
